March 2017 Newsletter

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Word from the Vice Chair, Ashwini Gokhale

Hope everyone’s March is off to a great start – sunny weather, basketball season, and spring breaks for those of you in school (or with children in school) make this an especially exciting time! All of us board members of Young Professionals of IEEE Dallas have been working hard to line up a diverse slate of events and opportunities for you to participate in throughout the year.

I am honored to be serving as your Vice-Chair, and am looking forward to working with Robert Berry (the Chair) and the rest of the YP leadership team.

Robert mentioned in the February newsletter that his goal is to focus our group’s activities around the core vision to “become the next generation of technology leaders”. I would like to align YP’s events around this vision by equipping our members with the tools and networks they need to become leaders in their fields and conscientious citizens in their communities.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or ideas for our YP group. I look forward to seeing you at our events.

Meet the full team of hard working IEEE Dallas YP Officers

In addition to our Chair Robert Berry and Vice Chair Ashwini Gokhale, there are a number of other hard working team members amongst our 2017 group of Officers. Joel Arzola and Tom Amlee return to the team this year, in new roles as Treasurer and Director of Communications, respectively. We also made two new additions for Secretary and Director of Outreach – Jacky Chen and Robbie Wilkins. Lastly, the work of the Officers could not be possible without our student University Liaisons to UTD and SMU: Jasmine Lee and Nathan Woodward.

 

 


 

February 2017 Newsletter

Friday, May 26th, 2017

A word from our newly-elected 2017 Chair, Robert Berry

Image

Welcome to 2017 everyone! I know it’s already the end of February, but here at the Young Professionals of IEEE Dallas, we’re just getting started to what is sure to be an exciting year of events.

I am proud to be serving as your Chair, and we have a new Vice Chair and leadership team of Officers in place as of a few weeks ago.We’ll be introducing our new Vice Chair and team in March, so look for that in next month’s newsletter.

As your Chair, one main goal I want for our Affinity Group to focus on is to “become the next generation of technology leaders”.

To become leaders, we need to stay engaged socially and technically with our engineering peers, and here at YP, we will provide lots of opportunities for that. I look forward to seeing you at our events.”
